Dalai Lama Inaugurates Tibetan Medical Institute in Leh, Ladakh - 2003-07-01


Tibetan stringer Tsering Migmar reported the Dalai Lama inaugurated a Tibetan Medical Institute in Leh, Ladakh this morning and talked about the benefits of Tibetan traditional medicine. The Dalai Lama says in order for the treatment to be effective, the physician must have compassion and kindness. There is a Tibetan saying that the doctor is extremely good in his trade, but because of his lack of compassion and kindness, his treatment is not that effective. And on the other hand, although the doctor is not that great in his trade, but because of his love and compassion, his treatment is very effective.
